Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?


Q: Would you like to share your reasons for getting the vaccine?

My church leader urged us to get it.

Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?

10/1 joint pain

10/5 eye twitching

10/15 bad headaches

10/15 eye pain

Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?

My life now is very difficult. I am unable to work very well.

Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:

Been to 2 family doctors and 2 opthamologists.

First family doctor said it was not possible to have a reaction last longer than a week.

Went to a wellness clinic and the doctor was more understanding and did admit after a couple visits that my problems were likely from the vaccine.

The eye doctors said it was eyelid swelling and dry eyes. The visits were extremely hurried and didn’t take the time that I needed.

Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?

I have not reported it.

Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?

The supplements given to me by the family doctor seemed to have helped the headaches. Most of my problems are related to my eyes now.

Q: Have you had covid before? What was your experience?

Yes. I had Covid on Feb 2021

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I wish there was more help and support for vaccine injured people.
